As we continue to celebrate the 5th anniversary of one our favorite labels in the world, we've lovingly and carefully curated this perfect (in our opinion), hour-long Cascine 5YR mixtape, made up of some of our personal favorite tracks from the label's deep and consistently stellar catalog. Featuring classics from Korallreven, Yumi Zouma, Keep Shelly in Athens, Lemonade, Airbird & Napolian + much more, as well as previously unreleased tracks from Jensen Sportag, Boat Club + Chad Valley, it's a beautiful reminder of just how much great stuff these guys have helped put out into the world over the past 5 years. You'll be able to cop the tape in physical form as part of Cascine's limited 5YR pack (along with a tee and a new Yumi Zouma 12") soon, or right now with tickets to Cascine's 5YR party next month at Brookyn's Wythe Hotel. Listen to the mixtape below exclusively on Spotify, and check the full tracklist after the jump...
Gorilla vs. Bear V goes down next week here in TX, and for the fifth year in a row, Dallas' own DJ Sober (who will be DJ'ing between sets all night at both GvsB shows) has hooked up the official mix to get us even more psyched for the occasion. This year's tape — featuring all of the acts playing this year's sold-out shows (Jamie xx, Lower Dens, Tei Shi, Bop English, Yumi Zouma + Prince Innocence), a couple GvsB alums (Panda Bear, Empress of), and a bunch of other stuff we're into at the moment — is arguably the best one yet, and is essentially an hour-long glitter-wavy summer jam. Listen/download below, check the tracklist after the jump, and look for this one to potentially make its way to cassette at some point in the near future...
Our girl Faith Silva is making her way over to España this week for the 2015 Primavera Sound festival, which takes place in Barcelona from Wednesday, May 27th through Saturday, May 30th.

Austin Psych Fest's LEVITATION 2015 is getting palpably close (next weekend!), and today we're debuting another great official fest mixtape by Al Lover, featuring tracks from HEALTH, Las Robertas, Tamaryn, Thee Oh Sees, Primal Scream, the Jesus and Mary Chain + others, and that's just from Saturday's lineup (listen to the Friday mixtape, featuring Tame Impala, Spiritualized, and more, here).

There aren't many better ways I can think of to start off a Monday morning than with a surprise mix from one of our favorite artists: Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi sent over this sweet lil' 33-minute mix made up of some of the wide-ranging sounds that (presumably) inspired his excellent, decidedly rocking, and diverse new record, which we've had on repeat all weekend. Featuring tracks from Ride, Wire, the Five Stairsteps, Drake, Tearjerker -- whose "You Can" might be my new favorite jam -- Chaz's Sides of Chaz side-project, and more. Listen to Toro y Moi's GvsB mix below, and check the full tracklist after the jump.
